Company / App Name: bickr
What does it do?
Allows users to argue on subjects in “Arenas” (private/public time limited chat groups). Users battle each other and invite friends as “Spectators”. Users take turns making retorts, Spectators vote on retorts. There is always a winner.
Why do we need it?
I noticed that platforms such as WhatsApp spark hilarious online arguments between friends, but do not reward anyone for their debating skills. There also needs to be more unfiltered digital debates.
Who is it for?
The target audience is the 18+ market. It’s a social media platform for grown-ups. Think Reddit meets Twitter.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
The sh!t or lit scoring system; there is no other social media platform that encourages both adult banter and debates. It’s like an online pub.
When and how are you opening up your beta to new users?
I am currently open to beta users. My social media and marketing presence are at an early stage as I am in the process of building a user base for the app.
When do you plan on launching?
